HAITIAN STEWED CHICKEN (POULET CREOLE)
15 min Prep, 1 h Cook
If you’re a big fan of hot and spicy food, you’re at the right place, so take a seat.
The biggest challenge was the precision of the measurements, ensuring that all the flavour comes through with the level of heat.
What you’ll find with a lot of Caribbean cooking is that we have a tendency to marinate the meat dishes overnight as opposed to marinating for a number of hours. Of course this isn’t a general rule of thumb, simply a cultural observation for the most part.
This is a spicy paleo taste, so if you’re on a paleo diet and want to introduce some Caribbean flavours, why not try this Haitian recipe.
Go on what are you waiting for………get in that kitchen and commence cooking pronto!
Puree the scallion, garlic, green pepper, parsley, thyme, pink salt, lime, scotch bonnet with ½ a cup of water in either a blender or food processor.
Pour the mixture onto the chicken and allow the chicken to be infused overnight.
Preheat the oven at 230 degrees celsius or gas mark 8
Line a roasting pan with aluminium foil and use a tong to carefully remove the chicken from the marinade. If using the fry pan/dutch oven method simply brown the chicken for 8-10 minutes on medium heat.
Roast the chicken in the oven for roughly 45 minutes, turning half way through to brown each side.
Put the marinade back in the refrigerator until needed.
In the meantime heat the coconut oil on medium heat and sautee the bell peppers with onion for 10 minutes, stirring until soft.
Add the tomato continuing to sautee everything for another minute.
Add the green marinade, 1 cup of water and browned chicken. Bring to the boil and reduce heat allowing the meat to braise for 20-25 minutes until tender.
Half way through cooking time season with additional pink salt, black pepper and gently stir.
